Climb Summary


Climb Summary

The Marshall Wall West and East climbs are located in the northwestern corner of Marin  County and are quite rural and remote.  The landscape is almost  exclusively rugged pastureland  with some views of the Pacific Ocean  and Marin County's Arroyo Sausal Reservoir.  The climbs can easily be fit into 50 mile or less loops that begin in Novato or Petaluma, with  the mid-point from either start the quaint coastal town of Point  Reyes Station.

     Do not seek these climbs out for a significant challenge as the term  "Wall"  to  describe these ascents is a bit of a misnomer as the  Marshall Walls are tame by  comparison to other more appropriately  named climbs in the North Bay such  as  Rancheria and Pine Flat  Walls)

    Traffic/Roadway surface:  There is very little traffic along this rural  narrow two  lane roadway, but you may encounter very large milk  transport trucks (slideshow,  above) - this is dairy country, after all!  As  with most of the Marin County roads, this  one is in great shape.
